Comedy and horror provide the beating heart of Big Talk’s slate, often overlapping and conspiring. The slate continues to broaden to include a wider range of stories that have the potential to move us, make us laugh, or scare us. We are talent driven. We want to work with directors of vision and writers with strong, unique voices. The future of Big Talk lies in continuing to work with the best of the UK and the US’s more experienced filmmakers, as well as constantly excavating and nurturing vibrant, emerging talent.
Big Talk’s credits include all of Edgar Wright’s films to date: ‘Shaun of the Dead’, ‘Hot Fuzz’ and ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World’, and Greg Mottola’s ‘Paul’, written by and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost with Kristen Wiig.
